What is Apeiron?

Apeiron is an extremely addictive and well polished Centipede arcade game for 1990's Macs.  This game was very popular among System 7 users even on low end Macs.  It offered fluid, high frame rate action gameplay accompanied by catchy background music and sound effects.

Apeiron was so popular that it later got a remake for PowerPC Mac OS X in 2004 called Apeiron X and it was also made compatible with Intel Mac OS X in 2008.

Note: There are mouse control issues trying to play this game under SheepShaver, but as suggested by @schitha you can hit CTRL-F5 to grab the mouse cursor and then the game works fine, as long as you do NOT have "hardcursor true" in your prefs file (having it removes the cursor lag in SheepShaver 2.5) thanks @petebocken for this reminder.  Works "fine" (slow) under QEMU with Mac OS 9.2.2.

 


Emulating this? It should run fine under: SheepShaver
